Round It Up for NOFA-NH Farm Share Program in September

The Monadnock Food Co-op will launch a month-long Round It Up Donation Drive to benefit the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Hampshire (NOFA-NH) Farm Share Program on September 1, 2023.

The Co-op’s Round It Up program empowers shoppers to make positive changes in their community by donating their change to local community organizations and initiatives. Shoppers can donate their change at the Co-op’s registers.

The NOFA-NH’s Farm Share Program provides New Hampshire community members with limited incomes discounted Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares, also known as farm shares. The program benefits children, families, and seniors by connecting individuals with low incomes to certified organic farms, providing a season’s worth of local farm-fresh products at a reduced cost.

“We believe that everyone has a right to nutritious, healthy food,” said Nikki Kolb, NOFA-NH Operations Director. “We’re proud to support New Hampshire’s organic farmers by making high-quality local food accessible to community members in need. Funds raised by the Monadnock Food Co-op are critical to support NOFA-NH’s Farm Share Program.”

Since 2017, the Farm Share Program has partnered with 24 certified organic farms to provide over 735 NH community members in need with 230 subsidized farm shares. Participating farms in the region included Abenaki Springs Farm in Walpole and Winter Street Farm in Claremont.
